At Spence Funeral Services, we help families through the process of saying farewell by creating meaningful celebration gatherings that honor the love and life of those who have passed. We help families share special and unique remembrances by providing caring guidance and supporting individual wishes.

Our mission has always been to provide excellent service to families while keeping costs affordable. As a long-standing member of the local community, we are a resource for individuals and families for funeral and memorial services in Manheim, Lititz, Elizabethtown and the surrounding Lancaster County areas.

We understand that it is not always possible to attend a visitation or service. We’ll create beautiful online memory pages to reach out to those who want to express their love and support. Family and friends may share a condolence or memory, post a photo, watch a webcast of the service, and more.

Please feel free to browse our pages to learn more about preplanning, grief support, traditional funeral and cremation services that we offer. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us.



     Funeral Webcasting

Our newest innovation in funeral service, webcasting, allows others to attend your loved one's service. Funeral webcasts are viewed over the internet and are archived for future viewing. We can also produce a DVD of the service as a permanent keepsake.




Grow a Living Memory®

Spence Funeral Services is excited to offer a new eco-friendly option for memorializing a loved one with The Living Urn® - America's first Bio Urn and Planting System designed to grow a beautiful, enduring memory tree, plant or flowers with cremated remains. Honor a loved one when they pass on and celebrate and commemorate all they've given us - the joy, the companionship, the love - and keep their memory present in our lives!  

Select a tree well-suited to your specific region from the many options (The Living Urn Tree Selection). A beautiful, enduring living memorial will then grow up from the urn to keep your loved one's memory present in your life!



Bible2School Receives Donation from Matthews Children’s Foundation

Matthews Children’s Foundation recently presented Manheim, PA-based Bible2School with a check for $1,000.  Bible2School, a nondenominational faith-based non-profit organization, is committed to serving children attending public school while using the Bible as the foundation for outreach and education.

Matthews Children’s Foundation of Pittsburgh, PA is a nonprofit organization associated with Matthews Aurora Funeral Solutions, leaders in manufacturing and distributing caskets, urns, and other funeral related products.  The foundation exclusively supports children’s charities across the U.S. by awarding grants three times a year.  Since its inception in 1992, the foundation has granted nearly $5 million to community-based, nonprofit children’s organizations nationwide.   All recipients must be recommended by a Matthews Aurora funeral home partner. 

Bill Spence noted, “Spence Funeral Services has been pleased to recommend Bible2School to the Matthews Children’s Foundation as a recipient of a generous grant which will be used to introduce children to the Bible.”
